Sampled last night on 5/5/14 and had this one many times before but has been awhile. Used to be imported from Germany but now made by Anheuser Busch. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a very dark amber in color with a lighter tan head that dissipates quickly that leaves some lacing when sipped but not much. Smells and tastes different to what I remember back in the '80's and early '90's even. Aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of brown sugar. Taste is on the weak side and not like I really remember. Overall, disappointed.
